There's a flip side to having prominent public intellectuals, which is that they start meddling in politics and often with quite disastrous results.
There's nothing in the world like live entertainment. With TV, you have to wait for your results; with live entertainment, people let you know right then and there. That relationship is established in 30 seconds. The first 30 seconds, they'll let you know whether they like you or not.
Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.
James Lane Allen

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Martin Luther King, Jr.
C. S. Lewis
